Top five ideal franchises for Kevin Love (5)

4. LA Lakers

LA Lakers would be a move in the wrong direction possibly for Kevin Love but then again he could help the Lakers move forward into next season.

Considering the old faces Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant are on their way out, the future head coach would see Love as an ideal player to fill their boots, and at 25 will surely provide a solid five to six years of clinical basketball.

The Lakers have the seventh draft pick this season, and considering they have a solid centre in Robert Sacre who has played 65 games this season and scored around 350 points, they need more numbers who could lift Lakers from their disappointing season.

Pau Gasol is another good centre as well as Chris Kaman, but again with Love in their team he'll surely offer more as his ambition will bounce off the rest of the team, and help them believe that it is possible.

The only problem is whether Love will want to move to a franchise who finished below Minnesota Timberwolves last season, and how long he wants to wait for success and to feature in the play-offs, as the Lakers could rebuild but it may take a while to be back where they once were.
